A vaccine pass is required for everyone aged 16 and over to enter the majority of leisure-orientated public places in France.

This includes cafes, restaurants, bars, cinemas, theatres, museums, transport services, etc. 

A vaccine pass is proof of being fully vaccinated or having recovered from Covid. 

However, there are various different ways in which in person can obtain a valid pass. 

See our guide below, which is accurate as of February 15, 2022. 

It should be noted that everyone who has received a booster vaccine dose already has a valid vaccine pass, as long as they received the dose seven days ago or more. 

France’s domestic vaccine pass rules differ to its international rules regarding what constitutes fully vaccinated.
